The Hong Kong Education Bibliographic Database has been developed by The Education University of Hong Kong Library as an easy-to-use annotated online database for researchers to quickly identify all research literature related to education in Hong Kong. It is one of the "Hong Kong Education Heritage" projects initiated by The Education University of Hong Kong to preserve the cultural heritage of education in Hong Kong.
The Bibliographic Database, first launched as a beta testing site in November 2010, is fully searchable by commonly used index fields such as author, title, publication year and keyword. In addition, a tree-structured subject classification based on two previous bibliographic projects (see below) has been established to allow researchers to locate items of interest easily by browsing. Brief annotations or abstracts will also be included for all items once the Bibliographic Database is completed.
The Bibliographic Database will index all research output related to education in Hong Kong regardless of the researchers' origin. When the bibliographic database is completed, data from three previous bibliographic projects related to Hong Kong education will be included with the coverage of past research work dating back as far as 1946:
At present, the following categories of research output are included: books or book chapters, articles from periodicals, dissertations or theses, conference papers, research reports and any other related materials. Both printed and non-printed materials will be indexed.
